OtterBox CEO Named Ernst & Young Finalist

Curt Richardson, OtterBox® founder and CEO, was selected as an Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2011 Mountain Desert region award finalist. Richardson was selected by a panel of independent judges. Award winners will be announced at a special gala event on Thursday, June 16, 2011 at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts.

According to Ernst & Young LLP, the award program recognizes entrepreneurs who demonstrate excellence and extraordinary success in such areas as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities.

“It’s certainly an honor to be a finalist, but the honor is for OtterBox,” Richardson said. “One person can’t achieve recognition like this. It takes a whole company.”

The Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year Program celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, recognizing business leaders in more than 140 cities and more than 50 countries across the world.

Regional award winners are eligible for consideration for the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year National Award. Award winners in several national categories, as well as the Entrepreneur Of The Year overall National Award winner, will be announced at the annual awards gala in Palm Springs, Calif., on November 12, 2011. The awards are the culminating event of the Ernst & Young Strategic Growth Forum®, the nation’s most prestigious gathering of high-growth, market-leading companies, which will be held November 9 to 13, 2011.
